I transferred to Drexel University after completing my freshman year at Northeastern University, a decision I am constantly grateful for. At Drexel I discovered the Materials Engineering Department through the MatE 100 2-day course. This course peaked my interest in what this specific engineering field had to offer and I subsequently switched my major from Mechanical Engineering. Today I find myself commingled within a small, but highly visible department, which provides boundless opportunities for a student to draw upon. This year I will be taking advantage of one of those opportunities by assisting in faculty led research, which will enhance my engineering portfolio post graduation.
Drexel also has afforded me the opportunity of participating in their renowned Co-Op program, gaining invaluable experience and a stronger promise of entrance into the corporate workforce as an engineer. Through this program I have been fortunate enough to complete two Co-Ops with Johnson & Johnson, both in the Pharma and Consumer sectors. Furthermore, I have maintained a part-time presence within this large corporation since my first Co-Op. During my time at Drexel I have had a variety of living arrangements. I initially lived within a transfer dorm, then commuted as a result of my Co-op position, and currently, I am now living in an on-campus apartment.
Each of my living situations have provided their own benefits and drawbacks, but unlike other universities, Drexel provides these different options, which I find important to a student’s ever changing needs. Prior to my graduation, I plan to partake in one of Drexel’s study abroad programs designed for engineering majors and have already begun the language requirement process. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions school or non-school related; I want to ensure that your college transition is an easy and exciting one!
